Long time gone: A quiz about David Crosby's biggest drug binges Try to separate fact from fiction in a haze of heavily mustachioed substance abuse David Crosby by Steven Hyden May 31, 2010 Article Tools * No matter how well Crosby, Stills, And Nash perform this Wednesday at Red Rocks, David Crosby deserves a standing ovation just for showing up. The 68-year-old singer and his signature walrus mustache have somehow made it to senior-citizen status after years of prodigious drug and alcohol abuse that should have killed him dozens of times. Tales of Crosby's drug-related excesses are so over-the-top and flat-out insane that they could never be fabricated. Or could they? See if you can pick out the actual David Crosby drug stories from the ones The A.V. Club made up.

1. Crosby ordered manager David Geffen to fly from Los Angeles to New York City so he could bring him drugs, or else he wouldn't perform at Carnegie Hall. Geffen was caught by police at the airport, but still managed to meet up with Crosby in Manhattan. When Geffen showed up without the drugs, Crosby screamed, "I'm gonna fucking kill you."

2. Crosby did acid with Mama Cass, Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys, and future mass murderer/aspiring pop star Charles Manson at Cass' house in Laurel Canyon in the late '60s. At one point he promised Manson a record contract and allegedly said, "You'll be bigger than Dylan, man!" Then he fell asleep. 3. According to Barney Hoskyns' Hotel California: The True-Life Adventures Of Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young, Mitchell, Taylor, Browne, Ronstadt, Geffen, The Eagles, And Their Many Friends, Crosby's drug and alcohol abuse in the early '70s "compounded delusions that he had served a tour of duty in Vietnam." He insisted that roadies call him "Lt. Gen. Crosby Esq." and salute him throughout CSNY's 1974 tour. 4. After smoking peyote procured from Donovan with groupie Pamela Des Barres in 1969, Crosby ran naked into the middle of the Sunset Strip and declared, "I am the lord Shiva, the destroyer! Worship my flaming cock!" He quickly disappeared into the nearby Whiskey-A-Go-Go before the police arrived. 5. Crosby, Stills, And Nash performed for Jimmy Carter at the White House in 1977. During a moment alone, they smoked a joint in the Oval Office. 6. In an interview with Creem magazine from the late '70s, Crosby claimed he once got the ultimate high from baking brownies laced with marijuana and cocaine. He made the brownies only once, though, because he subsequently forgot the brand name of the mix, and "the formula has to be exactly right, brother" in order to work. 7. While driving to a protest rally in 1982, Crosby lost control of his car and crashed into a freeway divider. The police found cocaine and a gun in his car. When asked why he was strapped, Crosby replied, "John Lennon." 8. A Rolling Stone story from 1985 reported that Crosby was freebasing $600,000 worth of cocaine a year in the early '80s. The Hells Angels ended up taking ownership of his house in exchange for covering his drug debts. 9. Crosby once sold his Mercedes to a drug dealer for an ounce of coke and $4,000. When the drug dealer overdosed and died, Crosby got the car back. 10. During a court appearance in Texas for a drug charge, Crosby dozed off with his head back and mouth open at the defendant's table. When his snoring became distractingly loud, one of his attorneys had to shake him until he woke up. Answers: 1. True; 2. False; 3. False (It was actually Stills, except for the "Lt. Gen. Esq." part); 4. False; 5. True; 6. False; 7. True; 8. True; 9. True; 10. True
